Micro-apartments are popping up all over Europe, New York, and San Francisco, and now the trend has reached the Mile High City. Denver architects have launched a competition to build 375 square-foot units on the South Platte River, about two miles from downtown. They hope the rents will be about $500-$700. Registration closes May 1, and submissions are due by May 9. 

In other news, a home owned by Lincoln's son sells for $7.6 million, and the India Design Forum happens in March. See the headlines after the jump.
